We all better be very cognizant of where our beloved sport might be headed. A recent study by a Penn State professor (Using this term generously) states that she has proven fish can feel pain just like mammals. Germany and Switzerland have already banned catch and release fishing. In essence if you fish it's for food and not sport, you are required to keep any fish over the minimum size limit. Great short movie I found on stocking trout in Germany.......

IMO....they're going to eventually ban football too because of the long term effects of head injuries and arthritic type injuries. I'm glad I will be dead before "they" ruin everything.

Fishing has never been about the fish....
